Sonex Aircraft announced the development of a 2-place variant of the SubSonex Personal Jet today. SubSonex JSX-2T is designed to be the lowest cost jet trainer and a perfect transition trainer for the single-place JSX-2, and for those who want to share the unique experience of jet-powered flight in a light aircraft.

JSX-2T is configured with side-by-side seating for optimum flexibility in CG/loading and offers an ideal training environment for its crew. With a wing span of 21.8 feet JSX-2T will have similar wing loading and handling to the single-place JSX-2. The two-place jet will utilize the same proven PBS TJ-100 turbojet engine system. An optional, more powerful PBS TJ-150 will achieve even higher performance.

The company will hold an Open House and Homecoming Fly-In event on Sunday, July 21st at 10am where visitors can learn more about the JSX-2T and its projected development timeline. The event is held at Sonex Factory Headquarters on Wittman Regional Airport the day before EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019 begins. A forum will also be held at AirVenture on Wednesday, July 24th on Forum Stage 5 at 11:30am.
